This is a title song from Green Day's Album : 21st Century Breakdown...  I have 
listened this song many times and I think this is accurate but  I am not 100% sure....

( Intro: C, G, F) X2
.
Part 1 : C Chord

C                   G             F
  Born into Nixon I was raised in hell
C                              G           F
  A welfare child where the teamsters dwelled
C                           G               F
  The last one born and the first one to run
C                         G       F
  My town was blind from refinery sun

Am                           F
  My generation is zero
Am                                F                      G
  I never made it as a working class hero

C     G           F
21st century breakdown
  C                           G         F
I once was lost but never was found
  C                           G                 F
I think I'm losing what's left of my mind
           C        G         F
To the 20th century deadline

(Intro) X2

C                 G                F
  I was made of poison and blood
C                           G           F
  Combination is what I understood
C               G           F
  From Mexico to the Berlin Wall
C                         G        F
  Homeland security could kill us all

Am                           F
  My generation is zero
Am                               F                     G
  I never made it as a working class hero

C     G           F
21st century breakdown
  C                           G         F
I once was lost but never was found
  C                           G                 F
I think I'm losing what's left of my mind
           C        G         F
To the 20th century deadline

Part 2: G chord

G                       C
We are the cries of the class of '13
G               C
Born in the year of humility
G                                  C
We are the desperate in the decline
G
Raised by the bastards of 1969

C                        F    G    C
My name is 'No one' your long lost son
Born on the 4th of July
C                                F      G   C           
Raised in the barnyards of heroes and cons
Left me for dead or alive
C                   F    G    C
There is a war that's inside my head
That questions the results and lies
         C                               F    G      C
I'm breaking my back till I'm better off dead
We are not payed enough to survive
C                      F      G    G
I am an engine, a worker, a pawn
My debt to the status quo
C                          F    G      C
The scars on my hands and a means to an end
It's all that I have to show
C                    F   G  C
I'm taking a loan on my sa  ni  ty
For the redemption of my soul
C                         F   G   C
WelI am exempt from this tra  ge  dy
And the 21st century fall
    F         G   C        F                      G   C
I praise liber  ty, the freedom to o  bey
         C                       G      C
It's a song that strangles me
            F               C      G
Well don't cross the line

F, C, G (repeat x3)

Part 3 : Outro

    C       C/B      Am,
Oh, dream, American dream
   G          F
I can't even sleep
      Fm             C
From rainstorms till dawn
    C        C/B       Am
Oh, bleed, America bleed
     G           F
Believe what you read

From heroes and cons
